NEWS: Sky Blues Pitch Update ahead of first home game next week!

A look at the progression at the Arena...

23 August 2022

Work continues on the improvements to the pitch at the Coventry Building Society Arena ahead of next week's first home game!

New synthetic fibres continue to be stitched into the ground throughout the pitch. These new fibres will give increased stability to the existing structure and then allow for better growth now and in the future.

Also, areas which have been more widely damaged will be subject to extensive and increased maintenance work so they can be fully integrated with the existing pitch.

The pitch will be completed by this Friday, with two-thirds of the pitch now done as of Tuesday morning.

The independent agronomists will return to the Arena on Wednesday to assess the progress of the pitch, and once the work is completed the pitch will be ready for the Sky Blues to play on again.

The Sky Blues' first game at the Arena is the match against Preston North End which will be played on Wednesday 31st August. See ticket info here.
